The pot holes on the road have gotten really bad and with the shadows from the trees and lack of lighting on the road at night it is hard to see them an some of them can't be avoided.

Almost every time my bro hits a large pot hole, his transmission slips and shifts from Drive to Neutral. He has to shift back and it really pisses him off. Other Ridgeline owners say it doesn't happen to them (and it doesn't happen to the one I drive).

Any idea what the problem is?

Your brother driving to fast?

Does the shifter itself come out of drive or is it just the transmission shifting on its own?

That makes sense especially if they have linkage for the shifter.

He's going speed limit and sometimes slower when it happens. The lever actually shifts to neutral when he hits the pot holes. So, it's not just the transmission, the whole thing just shifts.

I know he needs new control bushings (and he got the whole control arms because its easier to change out the arms than just the bushings). But he hasn't gotten them replaced yet. That might help with stabilizing the vehicle a bit more. But I don't know if it would affect the transmission.

He wasted his money on decorative stuff for the vehicle and hasn't sold his old truck and now he doesn't have $ to get some things fixed that need to be fixed.
